Not many high altitude treks in our country are accessible in the months of December, January and February. Brahmatal trek being one classic exception among them where trekking in winters is possible. The main reason behind Brahmatal trek to be a success among winter treks is the ample availability of snow and camping alongside frozen Bekaltal lake. To add to the grandeur is the visibility of mighty Himalayan Peaks such as the likes of Mount Trishul and
Mount Nanda Ghuti in the backdrops. From the Brahmatal top, one can easily view Himalayan Peaks like Mt.Chaukhambha, Neelkanth, Panchachulli Group of Peaks etc. which is a view worth summiting.

 

The trek to Brahmatal starts from Lohajung lying in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The trek comprises of trails passing through forests, villages, meadows, frozen lake and finally Brahmatal with high Himalayan peaks in the backdrop. An evening winter walk in the open meadows around the lake is a walk to be remembered forever.
It is said by local villagers that Lord Brahma meditated at the Brahmatal Lake making it a sacred lake.
